A Sound Of Thunder
Out Of The Darkness

A Sound Of Thunder - Out Of The Darkness

A Sound of Thunder delivers timeless metal with a focus on melodic, memorable songs with a sardonic twist. Lead vocalist Nina Osegueda is a rare example of a metal front woman who delivers powerful, lung-busting performances more akin to Bruce Dickinson than Amy Lee.

The band combines traditional heavy metal with elements of modern power metal, '60s and '70s blues based proto-metal combined with prog-rock. Big, catchy riffs are accompanied by a rhythm section walking the line between classic groove and prog-power technicality with solos that recall the glory days of arena metal and lyrics run the gamut of sci-fi and fantasy to more personal, soul-searching topics.

Out Of The Darkness, produced by Kevin '131' Gutierrez (Shinedown, While Heaven Wept, Deceased), is a refreshingly familiar dose of metal that would stand up as well in 1981 or 2021 as it does in 2012.
